Announcing Our New Membership Group!

 

“Home is a notion that only nations of the homeless fully appreciate and only the uprooted comprehend.” 
Wallace Stegner

“Travel does not exist without home… If we never return to the place we started, we would just be wandering, lost. Home is a reflecting surface, a place to measure our growth and enrich us after being infused with the outside world.” 
Josh Gates

When I was younger, and then when I was going through my own spiritual and psychic awakening in my early twenties, all I yearned for was someplace to belong. Somewhere where I could be myself, somewhere I could be in the company of others just like me, where I could speak about my feelings and experiences, my fears and insecurities, my dreams and hopes – and where, in that place, people would nod their heads in acceptance and understanding.

I yearned for a group like that my entire life but didn’t find one until I created that group for myself. That group is the YOM group, grown out of a loyal band of souls who had already been students or readers of my blog and who encouraged me along in the creation of my very first Planner.

It’s a place where I can be fully myself, with all of my mystical capacity and all of my human vulnerability. It’s a place where you can belong as well.

If you’re hungering for a safe and supportive place that will help you to grow spiritually, if you are intuitive or empathic or highly sensitive or psychic – or think you might be – this is the group for you.

Are you ready for a supportive and friendly community of like-minded souls? Are you ready for friendship and emotional connection? Are you ready to learn more about yourself, the energetic world, and how to live a more fulfilling and meaningful life?

If your answer is yes then come join the YOM group!

The next four years 2019 – 2022 are significant for our personal and spiritual evolution, as well as for the evolution of our planet. I thought long and hard about the best way to support your growth over that time and have decided that beefing up the content in my membership area was the best way to help you grow, adapt and step more fully into your authenticity and the life-path you chose for yourself pre-birth. You’ll see this membership group evolve into an Academy of Learning over the next twelve months so that my team and I (human and energetic) can serve you the best way I know how.

My membership space is a place where I can walk you through the year, explain all the aspects of the month ahead and the crystals we’ve chosen, where I do special webinars with my tribe to teach you new skills and share important information, and where I channel with my guides in live webinars, and answer your questions and provide general support. I often jump into our private Facebook group to pull cards and bring through messages for our members too. And did I mention what an incredible, loving and supportive space our YOM Community is? There is real friendship and belonging there. It’s a safe space, a heart space, and a place for great personal transformation. I totally heart it!

The format of YOM is constantly evolving. In 2019 you will have access to the foundation YOM online course as well as twelve free additional mini-courses and live events over the next year as well as our wonderful private Facebook group.

All our membership offerings launch tomorrow at 6am, Brisbane Australia time. There will be yearly or monthly subscription options. Our Planner, Mala, and a range of physical support materials and packs and online courses will also go live then too. And there’s time for them to get to you before Christmas as our Elvish helpers (Trish, Ben, Chelsi, Love, the dogs and me) get ready to stuff packages and race them to the post (complete with extra Christmas treats because we love you!).

I can’t wait to welcome you, and share all of this wonderful energy and support with you!

Doors open tomorrow, 6am. I’ll have links to everything on tomorrow’s blog.

Biggest hugs and love, Nicole  xoxo

 

A Very Special Meditation Mala – available now on pre-order

“Every act of love and kindness raises the vibration of the entire universe.” ~ Anonymous

 

Meditation is my anchor. I have practised meditation daily from the age of eleven. Since my twenties, it has been twice daily. It is the single most transformative thing I have ever incorporated into my life, and it’s a passion of mine.

Every time I run a mala-making workshop or a meditation workshop they sell out fast! I listened when you told me that you wanted to be able to learn to meditate even if you couldn’t come to my classes. So when I was working on the draft of my new YOM (Year of ME) Planner for 2019, I saw a way to help you. Each year I choose crystals to support the energy of every month of the year. For the past two years I have sold these stones in packs when I launched my Planner. But for 2019 I have done something different – I have incorporated each of the stones into a meditation mala. I have also added a lava stone and a clear quartz to the end of the mala. You can use the lava stone as a personal diffuser by adding a drop of your favourite essential oil. The clear quartz can be programmed to hold your intentions for the year ahead.

After I designed the mala, I searched high and low to find someone to make it for me. It was important that the people I worked with were ethical, that the staff were treated well and paid fairly, and that I could trust the integrity of the stones and of the work. I wanted the people making the malas to understand their use, and to respect them as a spiritual tool. Finally, I found a small company in India, and we have worked together tirelessly for months as I have modified my design, sourcing the best crystals from around the world and rudraksha from Nepal, creating the best possible product to support you. Rudraksha are seeds from a holy plant that is sacred to Hinduism and Buddhism.

Each mala has been lovingly made and hand-knotted – all to my design. A blessing is said for each bead as it is placed on the string. The finished malas are then blessed by a Hindu priest in a special ceremony. The blessed malas are on their way to me right now. Finally, the malas will sit in meditation with me at my farm, as I charge them up in a crystal grid and work to attune their energy. Then they will be ready to share with you.

The energies of this special mala are amazing. You can really feel the peace and love held within the mala, and when you wear it you get a sense of safety, calm and love. They are just beautiful. In fact, since I ‘ve been wearing mine people have been stopping me in the street to ask where I bought it from!

I’ve also had this year’s Planner printed at a lovely local family-owned business here in Australia. They are going to be exceptionally good quality, and I’m so proud of our new design and all the extra support features. If you buy a Planner pack (there are lots to choose from) on pre-order you will have access to a range of free bonus online mini-courses as a thank you for supporting this project. The Planner membership packages for 2019 also include twelve free additional mini-courses and live events over the next year as well as the year-long membership and course, and our wonderful private Facebook group.

This is my best offering yet, and I know you are going to absolutely love what we’ve created for you. Make sure to secure your Planner and Mala with a pre-order. They are both in limited supply, and I don’t want you to miss out!

Here’s a sneak peek at the YOM Planner for 2019. (Confession – I have stuck the cover for next year on my existing 2018 Planner for these photos as I only have the unbound proof copy so far!)

And here’s some footage of our glorious malas being made:

It doesn’t get much more authentic than this:

Thank you for your ongoing friendship and support this year. I’m really proud to be able to share this beautiful mala and Planner with you, and I’m looking forward to teaching you how to use both of them so that you can expand your intuitive abilities, live from a place of mindfulness, and make 2019 a year that is richly meaningful and satisfying to you,

Biggest love and hugs,

Nicole  xoxo

 

 

A Gorgeous Assortment of Crystals!

“Look deep into nature and then you will understand everything better.” ~ Albert Einstein

 

I’m surrounded by crystals right now.

Many of them I’ll holding in meditation so I can channel the meaning of them, ready for my Pop-Up Store and workshops in early November.

Some of them I’m channelling and putting aside to be allocated as part of the packs I’ll put together for my Year of ME Planner. For those people who want one, I’ll choose one of the stones specifically for them, as their meditation stone and gratitude anchor for 2019.

It’s my favourite time of the year, when my home is overflowing with crystals, magical things, essential oils and workshop preparations, and behind all of that the scents of Christmas baking. What’s not to love?

And here’s a sneak preview of something I’m absolutely thrilled about…

It’s a mala I have designed to support you during the energies of 2019 and beyond. Each of the crystals of the month in our 2019 Planner is represented in this mala, which has been lovingly made for me using fair-trade craftswomen in India who have hand-knotted the malas using gemstones and rudraksha, before having them blessed in a Hindu temple. The malas then sit in an energy grid on my farm where I meditate with them before they are ready for you to use in your own meditations. Their energy is incredible and I can’t wait to share them with you!

Both the printed edition of the planner and the mala are a limited release, so be ready to pre-order yours soon! I know you’ll just love them.

Biggest hugs to you from here amidst the stones, Nicole ❤ xx

Are you taking care of you?

 “Nourishing yourself in a way that helps you blossom in the direction you want to go is attainable, and you are worth the effort.” 
~ Deborah Day

 

Many of my friends are healers. They come from widely different schools and philosophies of healing – general medical practitioners, environmental medicine specialists, acupuncturists, naturopaths, herbalists, body workers, nutritionalists and all manner of other modalities. Over the past twenty years all of them have observed one thing; the number of people suffering long-term chronic illness, digestive issues, stress-related health issues and fatigue has soared. Not only that, many of the simple treatments that once worked so well for bringing people back into balance no longer are as effective.

Why?

There are many external factors – more exposure to pollutants and chemicals, little exercise, poorer diet, less sunshine.

But even when these things are addressed many people are slow to heal. I, and many of my learned practitioner friends, believe at least part of this is to do with the state of mind we are in.

There have been numerous studies done which show that when a person is relaxed the surface tension of their skin changes. Their blood pressure lowers, their heart slows, the chemicals responsible for sleep, blood sugar and hormonal balance rise and stabilise. In a place of relaxation people become more creative, more connected, happier, more adept at innovative thinking and problem solving. In a place of relaxation our bodies find it far easier to heal. It is impossible to think a negative thought when you are in a deeply relaxed state.

What does negative thinking have to do with my health?

Go ahead. Think of something that really makes you mad. Or powerless. Feel the changes take place in your body. You will feel heavier, there will be a sense of tension in your face and body. You may have a surge of adrenalin or a sudden draining away of energy. Your heart speeds up, you may feel clammy and hot, agitated or ill. This is not your imagination – this is your body’s autonomic response to your thoughts. This is a natural reaction to perceived stress within your body. Worry, stress, fear, panic, over-thinking; this is what is stopping you from healing.

Over time, this sort of thinking has a destructive impact on the body. It exhausts our adrenals. It puts pressure on our thyroid and other parts of our endocrine system. Our liver becomes stressed and congested and can’t function as well as it used to as it deals with the flood of naturally occurring chemicals WE have created in our body through the stress response.

In this place of adrenal depletion we can become addicted to caffeine, energy drinks, sugar and carbs to keep us functioning.

The blood is always in our extremities as we ready ourselves to fight or flee (the stress response once again) so our digestion slows and becomes impaired. Even if we gain weight we may still be massively malnourished, and our body may struggle to absorb supplements, herbs and better food.

We may resort to anti-depressants or sleeping pills. We may self-medicate with drugs or alcohol. Or we may just go through life exhausted, sick and not coping but needing to get up and get on with it each day.

Our sleep becomes affected, and that avenue of healing becomes further reduced. No matter who we see, or what we try nothing seems to work. Or it doesn’t work for long.

Sound familiar?

If you are living with stress and anxiety, if there is something or someone in your life, orfrom your past, that causes you to feel unsafe, inadequate, fearful, anxious, angry, resentful, or shamed… then it’s going to be an uphill battle to become well and stay well.

Positive emotions impact your health positively. Negative emotions impact your life negatively.

The longer a negative emotion is the ugly background wallpaper in your life, the more you get accustomed to it, but don’t be fooled. It will still be affecting you. And not in a good way.

Let me repeat an important point. It is impossible to experience a negative emotion when you are in a relaxed state.

What this means for your health is simple. When you are relaxed, your body can know healing. When you are relaxed your body can do what it needs to do to put itself back into balance, and to put you back into flow, connection and clarity.

So, by all means find yourself a skilled healer, a physician, or a team to put your body back together. But remember you also need to do your part. You need to take care of the housekeeping of your mind.

Do things that relax you. Practice meditation, yoga or tai chi. Listen to music. Go for walks in nature.Take the dog! Make time for YOU in your life. Do the things that give you peace. Find people, places and activities that nourish, validate and support you.

Let go of what no longer serves you in your life.

And if you need to, seek a counsellor, psychologist, psychiatrist – someone trained in helping you undo what has bound you up in knots.

I know this to be true: When your mind can know peace, your body can know healing – or at the very least an improvement in pain levels and quality of life.

Honour your body, work with your mind, and live from your heart. Your body has an infinite wisdom, and that wisdom is free to reign when we are in a place of relaxation and ease. Do all you can to find or create that peaceful place within you. Healing can then be a natural flow-on effect of that energy.

Saturday Workshop 

Saturday 30 June – Full Day Workshop 10am to 4.30pm

Foundation Spiritual Practices – This one day workshop will help you wake up your natural psychic and intuitive abilities by developing a strong practice of regular habits to incorporate into your daily life. Whether you are a complete beginner or have been working with your spiritual gifts for years you’ll find tools and techniques here to help accelerate your growth. More importantly, these practices will help you to reclaim your mindfulness, sense of self, inner calm, good decision-making, peace within, and a strong connection to guiding energies.

These are the techniques I used to build my own intuitive and psychic abilities. They are tried and tested with over 35 years of my own personal practice. If you’re busy, stressed, anxious, time-poor and longing for a way back to that safe and tranquil space of connection and communion, or if you’ve gotten out of the habit of regular spiritual practice this is the workshop for you!

We will be learning:

  • What a spiritual Journeymaker is and why it’s time for you to make that journey!
  • How to use tarot and oracle cards to find your own answers and to go deeply into a space that gives you purpose, direction and perspective. (Even if you have NEVER done this before I will have you working confidently within a short space of time!)
  • How to use crystals for deep soul work.
  • How to use journalling as part of your regular spiritual practice – done properly, journalling can open doors in your life you’d never thought possible! I’ll show you how to frame your questions, how to spiritually connect and how to go deeper to create a sacred journey of self-enlightenment.
  • How to easily connect with your Guides and Higher Self in meditation, and how to access these energies for direction and guidance.
  • How to give yourself and others energetic healing to revitalise the body, clear blockages and promote physical, emotional and spiritual healing.
  • Creating a sacred space in your home, and the fundamentals of crystal gridding, space clearing and energy work.
  • Some sacred and powerful breathing and energies techniques taught to me by my Aboriginal Aunties that I have never shared before.
  • Some simple quick spiritual rituals to start and end your day connected, balanced and in a good place.

Morning and afternoon tea, and lunch will be provided.

All participants will receive worksheets, a crystal grid to construct at home and MP3 recordings of our guided meditations after the event so that you can follow along with them at home until you are confident enough to do them by yourself.

Bookings Essential! You can purchase tickets at our online Shop

Cost: $330 adults, $220 children under 17

Sunday Workshop 

Sunday 1 July – Full Day Workshop 10am to 4.30pm

Making and Using Meditation Mala Beads – Lots of people are wearing Mala Beads these days, but no-one seems to know how to actually use them!

Come along to this fun and instructive one-day workshop and let me show you how. Today you will learn about Mala Beads, how they work, and how to use them.

You’ll create your own sacred Meditation Mala, with a combination of blessed wooden beads and crystals. (And oh my, you should see the crystals and pearls I have for you to choose from!) You’ll learn the prayers and blessings to activate your Mala and to attune it to your own energies. At the end of the day you’ll have a beautiful wearable spiritual tool, that suits your personality, energy and style.

You’ll also learn how to use your Meditation Mala. I’ll show you:

  • how to meditate to reach that deep quiet space that everyone talks about but so few people get to
  • how to meditate to manage anxiety, stress and depression
  • how to meditate to create manifesting energies that draw positive energy, situations and relationships to your life
  • how to meditate to send energy and healing to others
  • how to meditate to change habits and build positive new ones
  • how to meditate to build your own intuitive connection and connection to Guides, Ancestors, Angels and God (whomever or whatever you perceive that energy to be)
  • how to meditate to clear and activate your chakras

These are the mala meditation techniques I have used to build my own intuitive and psychic abilities, some of which have been shared with me by Tibetan Buddhist Shamans.

By the end of the day you’ll feel connected, grounded, blissy and fabulous!

Morning and afternoon tea, and lunch will be provided.

All participants will take home their own sacred mala beads. You’ll also receive worksheets and MP3 recordings of our guided meditations after the event so that you can follow along with them at home until you are confident enough to do them by yourself.

Revisiting Our Guiding Card for 2018

“Be the celebrators, celebrate! Already there is too much—the flowers have bloomed, the birds are singing, the sun is there in the sky—celebrate it! You are breathing and you are alive and you have consciousness, celebrate it!” 
~  Osho

 

As May comes to a close I thought it time to revisit the guiding energies for 2018. This year The Sun is our guiding card and her message is a powerful and wise one.

This year is about connection and inclusion. It’s a fine year for all forms of creativity, fertility and innovation. 2018 is heart-focused. Relationships – with yourself, with others, with your work – that’s what matters this year.It’s a great year for healing old hurts, mending fences and rebuilding relationships. It’s also a year where you’re clearly see where to walk away and put your energies to situations and relationships that are more suitable for you.

The Sun shows us that this year we’re supported to spend time in acts of creativity and innovation. Ideas will flow. Things will come together. Making money, making art, connecting in love, original ideas and projects – all of these things will become easier as we work on healing our old hurts, fears and limiting beliefs.
It’s also a year for socialising, for celebrating and for connecting with family and friends.

The Sun’s energy is strongly aligned with our Solar Plexus Chakra – our centre of Self. Our solar plexus is the bright yellow chakra that sits around the navel, and this chakra is all about our identity and sense of self, our individuality and self-sovereignty. It’s time to be more true to ourselves. We need to shine our Light in the world by being who we came here to be. This might have made the beginning of 2018 difficult for you, as you began to feel into the truth of who you are and to see where the life you are currently living may not have been aligned with your innermost truth and values. Shift and realignment can be uncomfortable while we are in that readjustment period – while we’re facing how far we’ve moved away from our true north – and making changes to our behaviours, beliefs, relationships and circumstances.

It’s a time for making things and creating art. For finding a life path that fills us with gratitude, for celebration and for strong growth in our families and businesses. It’s about belonging to or creating a tribe of our own. A time for enjoying ourselves and this gift that is our lives. A time for moving forward together.

After years on a path of struggle and feeling alone in the world, 2018 opens out onto a kinder energy where we can finally begin to feel like we belong. First thought, we might need to break free of the old. That’s okay. The pain of that change will be worth it.

Don’t waste your year on hard work and striving unless that is absolutely the thing that lights you up, and even then make sure there is ample time to smell the roses. It’s a year where we need to slow down, reflect and find ways to have meaningful engagement with ourselves and the world around us.

At its heart 2018 is a soul-centred and abundant year. It holds a very fresh, nurturing and inspiring energy. It’s a year of possibility, creativity, connectedness, communication, collaboration and community. It’s a time where love can blossom, and relationships can thrive. The families we are born into or create for ourselves, our friendships, our work and community connections – all of these will have a greater importance for us this year.

So, as we come into June which is a month for reflection, soul work, for rest and healing and cosy-ing up with the people we love, it’s worth looking back on what we have already decided, overcome or acted upon this year, and celebrating our milestones, however large or small they may be.

Revised Date Savers For Brisbane Pop Up Shop and Workshops!

“Your inner strength is your outer foundation” 
Allan Rufus

Lovelies, please amend your calendars! Due to that horrendous bout of flu which I am only just recovering from, we’ve postponed the Brisbane events until June.

Although I was sad to postpone there is a wonderful upside. My crystal suppliers are bringing me some great new specimens in time for the June dates. I’ll have more rare stones from Tibet and parts of China, some incredible stones from Afghanistan, lots of amazing Australian crystals and a few very special finds including Amber, skeletal Smoky Quartz and some Golden Healer Cactus Quartz clusters. I can’t wait to share them with you! (Ben has his fingers crossed that I won’t keep TOO many of them for myself.) from

These are the techniques I used to build my own intuitive and psychic abilities. They are tried and tested with over 35 years of my own personal practice. If you’re busy, stressed, anxious, time-poor and longing for a way back to that safe and tranquil space of connection and communion, or if you’ve gotten out of the habit of regular spiritual practice this is the workshop for you!

We will be learning:

  • What a spiritual Journeymaker is and why it’s time for you to make that journey!
  • How to use tarot and oracle cards to find your own answers and to go deeply into a space that gives you purpose, direction and perspective. (Even if you have NEVER done this before I will have you working confidently within a short space of time!)
  • How to use crystals for deep soul work.
  • How to use journalling as part of your regular spiritual practice – done properly, journalling can open doors in your life you’d never thought possible! I’ll show you how to frame your questions, how to spiritually connect and how to go deeper to create a sacred journey of self-enlightenment.
  • How to easily connect with your Guides and Higher Self in meditation, and how to access these energies for direction and guidance.
  • How to give yourself and others energetic healing to revitalise the body, clear blockages and promote physical, emotional and spiritual healing.
  • Creating a sacred space in your home, and the fundamentals of crystal gridding, space clearing and energy work.
  • Some sacred and powerful breathing and energies techniques taught to me by my Aboriginal Aunties that I have never shared before.
  • Some simple quick spiritual rituals to start and end your day connected, balanced and in a good place.

Morning and afternoon tea, and lunch will be provided.

All participants will receive worksheets, a crystal grid to construct at home and MP3 recordings of our guided meditations after the event so that you can follow along with them at home until you are confident enough to do them by yourself.

Bookings Essential!

Cost: $330 adults, $220 children under 17

Sunday Workshop 

Sunday 1 July – Full Day Workshop 10am to 4.30pm

Making and Using Meditation Mala Beads – Lots of people are wearing Mala Beads these days, but no-one seems to know how to actually use them!

Come along to this fun and instructive one-day workshop and let me show you how. Today you will learn about Mala Beads, how they work, and how to use them.

You’ll create your own sacred Meditation Mala, with a combination of blessed wooden beads and crystals. (And oh my, you should see the crystals and pearls I have for you to choose from!) You’ll learn the prayers and blessings to activate your Mala and to attune it to your own energies. At the end of the day you’ll have a beautiful wearable spiritual tool, that suits your personality, energy and style.

You’ll also learn how to use your Meditation Mala. I’ll show you:

  • how to meditate to reach that deep quiet space that everyone talks about but so few people get to
  • how to meditate to manage anxiety, stress and depression
  • how to meditate to create manifesting energies that draw positive energy, situations and relationships to your life
  • how to meditate to send energy and healing to others
  • how to meditate to change habits and build positive new ones
  • how to meditate to build your own intuitive connection and connection to Guides, Ancestors, Angels and God (whomever or whatever you perceive that energy to be)
  • how to meditate to clear and activate your chakras

These are the mala meditation techniques I have used to build my own intuitive and psychic abilities, some of which have been shared with me by Tibetan Buddhist Shamans.

By the end of the day you’ll feel connected, grounded, blissy and fabulous!

Morning and afternoon tea, and lunch will be provided.

All participants will take home their own sacred mala beads. You’ll also receive worksheets and MP3 recordings of our guided meditations after the event so that you can follow along with them at home until you are confident enough to do them by yourself.

Date Savers For May Pop Up Shop and Workshops!

“Your inner strength is your outer foundation” 
Allan Rufus

We’re thrilled to announce our next Brisbane Pop Up Shop and One Day workshops!

All events will be held between Friday May 25 and Sunday May 27 at St Colomb’s Church Hall,  23 Victoria St, Clayfield. That’s in Brisbane, QLD, Australia.

Friday May 25 is our Pop Up Shop Opening and Channelling and Guided Meditation Evening. Come browse our gorgeous range of crystals, singing bowls, prayer shawls, tarot and oracle cards, journals and other tools for self-exploration and spiritual development.

There will be free demonstrations on using the singing bowls to clear spaces and your own energies, and Nicole and her team will be on hand to help with your crystal and card selections.

Friday Event: Join us for a shared supper and our Channelling Evening and Guided Meditation sessions on Friday night 6pm to 9pm. Come along and meet some of my guides (including some fairy friends!). They will share information about a range of topics, as well as answering questions from the audience. I rarely conduct channelling sessions outside my retreats, so this is a very special offering. I’ll be channelling my guides and some fairy friends who’ll be discussing:

  • How to use silence and nature to heal yourself emotionally and physically
  • How to use meditation to increase your emotional resilience and physical immunity
  • How to work with crystals in meditation, for manifestation and for healing and the science behind how crystals interact with us (Some really cool new information here!)
  • Using movement and music to energise you, release energetic and emotional blockages and help manage anxiety and depression.

These nights are always entertaining, educational and often very enlightening. Please bring a plate to share for supper. Tea and coffee will be provided.

Want to bring your kids? I welcome them as long as they are old enough to participate in the meditations and activities and are interested in the kind of content we’ll be sharing. As their parent you’ll know if this event is right for your child. This is not an evening suited to little children.

Cost: $35 adults, $15 children under 17 – Please RSVP to Dana at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com

It’s Not Too Late To Join My Business Mentoring Program!

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” 
Benjamin Franklin

In the past few weeks I’ve been inundated with people asking me if it’s too late for them to join my business mentoring program for 2018.

The short answer to that is NO, but the doors won’t stay open much longer. I’ll be closing out this group on March 15 and the doors won’t open again until January 2019.

My mentoring program combines a year-long membership to my Year of ME community and Planner, as well as a ten-month business course designed to help you get up and running or to level up and create better cashflow in your existing business.

And all of this while learning to be beautifully, comfortably and authentically yourself!

What’s Involved?

There are three options for this mentoring:

  1. The standard package which costs $770 – truly this is a no-brainer. Where else can you get ten months of business course and group coaching for $440 AND email support from me? Which is what it boils down to after we subtract the twelve-month Year of ME (YOM) community membership and course – the YOM course is compulsory and is where I teach many of the metaphysical foundations you’ll find so helpful in a soul-centred business. The YOM community is where I hang out, and where you can get access to me for all kinds of stuff. Incidentally, if business isn’t your thing or if you’re in that long queue of people waiting for a reading with me or to come on my next retreat you should consider joining YOM because I run regular webinars and Facebook live sessions where I share many of the concepts and skills I teach on retreats, and I also do card readings in my live sessions where I give my YOMMERS guidance and support – it’s awesome. Did I say you should come join us?! Details in my shop! The standard business mentoring package is available as a one-time purchase or monthly subscription. Note: total subscription cost slightly higher than one-time price
  2. The standard package plus ad hoc coaching hours – you can buy coaching sessions as you need them with me, to get that extra targeted support.
  3. The Deluxe YOMpreneur package. This package includes membership to YOM and YOMpreneur 2018, with one important extra. Dedicated one-on-one coaching time with me as we work through the YOMpreneur program. As a Deluxe YOMpreneur for 2018 you’ll receive:
    • Priority booking status ahead of all my other clients
    • 10 hours of intensive business coaching and personal metaphysical mentoring to be used throughout the year. All our sessions will be recorded and made available to you as MP3s.This can be taken as phone, skype or face-to-face sessions.
    • A twenty-minute orientation call/skype where we map out your coaching time with me for the year ahead.
    • Email support.
    • This can also be paid for as a one-time buy or as a monthly subscription

Why work with me?

I have worked as a private business coach for a number of high-profile clients for over fifteen years, helping them to grow their businesses in sustainable ways. To do this work I combine my psychic and business abilities as well as my professional training and experience to help identify opportunities, strengths and skills – and to then generate business plans that elevate performance, create teams and build sustainable and strong businesses.

I’ve got a strong business and adult education background and qualifications in those fields, as well as being able to use my intuitive and psychic skills. My current business is a healthy six-figure gig that I run from home, part-time and often in my pyjamas, with help from a great team. I’ve run other people’s businesses, been a business trouble-shooter, a business lecturer, and run my own corporate communications company with universities, government departments, international agencies and global corporations as clients. I understand how to create businesses that can support your needs, especially if you have a family, are a carer or are working from a place of illness, fatigue or disability.

In 2017 I launched the pilot program of YOMpreneur – a program to help my Cauldrons and Cupcakes community and my metaphysical mentoring students to create their own success in business.

In 2018 I’ve refined this process to become YOMpreneur Business 2018. In this mentoring program I will work with you on your existing small business or a new business idea to build something that can generate income and help you to take your ideas and products to the world.

Seriously, I’ll never offer this amazing course at such a ridiculously cheap price ever again, so why not sign up now and take advantage of the chance to work with me to help make your business dreams a reality!

Read on to find out more below.

 

What’s In the YOMpreneur Course for 2018?

The YOMprenuer Course is designed to be used in conjunction with the Year of ME Planner yearly membership and course. Access to the YOM course and materials is part of the YOMpreneur Package.

The YOMpreneur Coursework and Support runs from February to November 2018.

In these ten months I will work to skill you up in the following areas:

  • how to think like an entrepreneur – the ‘ideas’ part of the business
  • how to think like a business manager – the ‘get stuff done’ part of the business
  • how to actively learn from the past year, and incorporate those learnings into your business
  • how to incorporate your intuition and values into your business planning and everyday business activities
  • how to understand and clearly define your business offerings and audience
  • how to develop business plans that are sustainable and that honour your own style of working and living
  • how to create systems to support your business and your work/life balance
  • how to identify your best opportunities for growth and success in 2018
  • how to work towards turning ideas into action, results and profit
  • how to generate cash-flow in your business
  • how to avoid burnout and make business fun again!

You’ll also get to connect with other intuitive and empathic entrepreneurs

If you join up as a YOMpreneur I’ll show you how to navigate and plan for the year ahead in business, and how to incorporate those activities back into your Year of ME Planner so that you get on track and then keep going. The YOMpreneur membership will suit you if you have a business idea but haven’t taken it further, but it will also work for you if you have an existing business and are looking to make it work better for you or take things to the next level! There is something here for all heart-based entrepreneurs.

I’m going to help you create the plan and then work the plan.

The emphasis in 2018 is on getting you cash-flow positive. We’re going to do this through regular group coaching calls, coursework and webinars.

YOMpreneur offers something very important – like-minded people, accountability and a chance to be less isolated in your business development and entrepreneurial dreams.

I’ll also have webinars and facebook live events to keep you updated, motivated and heading in the right direction. You’ll also have a special accountability buddy for the year ahead – me!

YOMpreneur 2018 includes the Year of ME membership (YOM) and year-long course as well as the YOMpreneur membership and course. Both groups also have private facebook pages.
